A little more than two years ago I was running for alderman, and one of my opponents was Roger Wilson. You already know the result: He won. And Frederick has been better for it. I will say that I am glad he won.

I think it’s great that there are new plans to develop the old mall site on the Golden Mile.

The political cartoon in the Nov. 5 News-Post shows a list of the “Official Rules/Democrat U.S. House of Representatives/Impeachment Inquiry” printed on House of Representatives stationery. The cartoon has two “Rules”: 1) We Win; 2) Trump Loses. The message is that the Democrats’ impeachment…

Some of our family members will be coming into town this Christmas season. On a previous visit over the holidays, we really enjoyed the horse-drawn carriage rides through downtown Frederick.

November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, and Alzheimer’s disease is a global challenge for health and social care in the 21st century. Almost 6 million people in the U.S. are living with the disease, which is the most expensive disease in the country. An annual cost of $290 …

When was the last time you thanked a veteran for their service to our nation? Only God knows the logistics of all the wars in this world and in our own nation.

A few days ago, on Nov. 4, you gave a lot of space to an article from the PETA/vegan people that pushed their agenda of eating a diet without meat, eggs and cheese.

Is it too much to ask that the letters you opt to run adduce some real-world supporting facts/data? In that light, Charles E. Hubbard’s “Three years later, nothing on Trump” (Nov. 7) could use some further review — going forward — something more substantial than his fact-free screed might be…

As a resident of Frederick’s south end for more than 30 years, I can report that the neighborhood has improved in many ways over time. However, with rare exception, all such improvement is the result of private-sector investment — citizens purchasing and renovating homes or establishing busi…

I felt compelled to offer some comments regarding Mr. Hubbard’s submission on Nov. 7, “Three years later, nothing on Trump.” It’s commendable that Mr. Hubbard is looking forward to the 2020 elections. I’m hopeful many more fellow Americans become more engaged and will do their civic duty by voting.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the relatively small minority of the Walkersville Heritage Farm Park Yard Waste Center users who have so abused the facility that Frederick County had no feasible alternative but to close it down. There is no need to call out any of you by name sinc…

Thank you to the Lamberts for their many years of bringing their carriage rides to Frederick. We went on the Cinderella ride and loved it!

As a minority liberal in a rural and very conservative part of the county, I’d like to share what I see as a shift in the thinking of some conservative friends and neighbors, who usually avoid talking with me about anything except vegetable gardens, pups, grandkids, runaway chickens and wildlife.

For three years now, the Democratic majority in the House has been going after this president trying to justify impeachment.

I fully support the county executive and County Council as they attempt to redevelop a citizens board for the Monocacy River, but failing to include the entire watershed under its purview would be a mistake. Much like treating heart disease, focusing on repairing an artery without treating t…

During World War II, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built a supply route known as the Alaskan Highway. Construction began on March 8, 1942, and its conclusion came on Oct. 28, 1942 (10 months).

President Trump’s approval rating among the GOP dropped from a “career high” of 87 percent in July to 74 percent at the end of October. Trump fatigue may be setting in.

Thanks to those who responded to my letter. I’m sure there were more letters The News-Post didn’t have space to use.

Your Oct. 30 editorial doesn’t consider the implications for local taxpayers of proceeding with the downtown Plamondon hotel without state money. Local taxpayers will now be asked to fill the gap left by the state — close to doubling our exposure to more than $20 million.

To the gentleman sitting at the next table in a restaurant who performed the Heimlich maneuver when my friend desperately needed it, a very sincere thank-you for your quick response and knowledge of what to do.

In the course of a discussion at a recent Fredrick County Charter Commission meeting, a story was being told that the county's sheriff is so frugal that he turns money back each year to the county coffers. Over the past 10 years, his turn-backs, according to the sheriff and several speakers,…

In an editorial on Oct. 30, The Frederick News-Post claims, without offering any supporting facts, that a downtown public-private hotel project will be a “vital driver to sustain and extend development” in the city of Frederick, and its “importance cannot be overstated.”

We in the county are about to be “Blained” again. Let us not fix or correct a problem; let’s just close it. Why can we not just leave the mulch pile in Walkersville open? You can cut back the hours, have somebody monitor the site, put up cameras, charge commercial users a reduced rate and ge…
